About 80,000 Ukrainians, most of whom are men, have returned home from abroad during the five days of repelling Russian aggression, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine reports.
“It should be noted that over the five days of repelling the aggression, people not only left Ukraine. Almost 80,000 of our compatriots, most of whom are men, have returned home from abroad. Patriots who worked or temporarily lived abroad are coming to Ukraine to join the ranks of the Armed Forces, other military formations, and territorial defence forces. We are proud of our compatriots!” the Ministry of Internal Affairs emphasised.
As a reminder, on 24 February, on the instructions of President Vladimir Putin, Russia launched a war against Ukraine. Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilisation was announced.
Today, the aggressor’s troops are regrouping and accumulating armoured vehicles and missile and artillery weapons in certain areas, primarily to surround and capture Kyiv and large cities of Ukraine, including Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Odesa, Kherson, and Mariupol. A significant part of military equipment comes from the territory of Belarus and through the occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
